For over 5,000 years, gold has been mankind’s most enduring form of wealth.
Throughout history, many different civilizations around the world have all come to the same conclusion: gold is money.
That didn’t happen by accident.
It happened because gold has a set of characteristics that make it uniquely suitable as money. It is durable, divisible, consistent, convenient, and most important, it has strict scarcity.
Physical gold that you store securely in your possession represents wealth that criminals, thieves, and governments cannot easily steal, confiscate, freeze, sanction, or devalue.
